When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 4 2012

Vintage Theatre Collective premiered this touring production of August Strindberg's 1888 tragedy at 6018North, a currently gutted Edgewater mansion-cum-art gallery, where the audience watched the psychosexual face-off between self-destructive countess Julie and her sadomasochistic servant Jean through the studs of a ripped-out living-room wall. Boy, are you sorry you missed it. To set Strindberg's unsparing demolition of repressive social structures in a blown-out manse was a singularly resonant idea. And Megan Kohl's unaffected, soul-stirring performance as the unfathomable Miss Julie was one for the record books. Jason Economus's excruciatingly scrupulous production moves next to the Dolce Casa Cafe (October 26-28, 4947 N. Damen) and the Nightingale microcinema (November 2-4, 1084 N. Milwaukee), performed each weekend by a different cast. —Justin Hayford
